Hello to All,

Well another Friday, and the laptop pitched a fit, could not get it to work, freezing I wait, wait,  and wait some more. In the meantime had errands to run. It is snowing again, ugh, mother nature please give us a break. Had the rain, winds, and the snow was melting fast, but that did not last.  Soon, it will be bare.  And mud !! That wind is cold out there. I guess we just have to be patient.
